Brief Answer:
The age and lack of vitamin C common cause

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

Easy bruises are very common late middle age due to loss of collagen in skin tissue and inefficient absorption of vitamin C from diet.

Rather than worrying I request you to supplement Vitamin C in your diet and avoid exposure to rough surfaces as far as possible.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

I had a cardiac cath 4 days ago through the groin. I had no pain the day afterwards, but have been experiencing moderate pain at the site that is worse in the evening after I have been on my feet all day. Is this normal? There is no swelling, fever, sign of infection or numbness, just an acorn sized lump where I assume the collagen plug is, and bruising on my inner thigh on that side.
